Saturday, we got all loaded up and had to go to u-haul to fix the trailer lights. We all sat in the back of the trailer waiting for them to fix it and just had fun. Right before we left, we all started chanting "Tall Ships, Tall Ships, Tall Ships!" and clapping. It was amazing. We finally got on the road and it took us forever to get to Traverse City, it felt like. We finally got there and got everything unloaded into the venue in Traverse City. The venue was so amazing. I loved it. It was like an art gallery right next to it.. but it was truly an awesome atmosphere. After we were all loaded into the venue, we headed down to the beach. I got so many amazing pictures of the guys. They were swimming, while us girls laughed on the beach. It was such an awesome time. This is probably the best time I've ever had with friends and people. Ever. In my entire life. I have true friends, I have amazing girls around that actually care about you. Plus I'm married to the most wonderful person on the planet. Our group of friends.. honestly? The best thing ever. After that, we headed back up and all stuffed into the van to get some McDonalds. When we headed back, we were being so loud in the van and being hilarious. I love every single one of our friends. So much. I feel so close to all of them too. We got back into the venue and it was no re-entry, so I was in there all night. I stood on the chairs by Tall Ships merch and just watched the bands. Verse and Have Heart finally got there and they were so amazing. It was awesome. I was overwhelmed by how amazing it was. Everybody had an awesome time and we all walked out of there just feeling amazing. I was so infatuated with Pat Flynn, Haha. I even got a PICTURE with him and got a hoodie. Soo much fun. The drive home was treacherous, but it was worth it. So worth it. We got home at 3:30 in the morning and I didn't sleep until about 4 AM. I got to work by 7:31 am this morning though, so I think I did quite well. Awesome, awesome, awesome weekend. I love our friends and our lives.
